Delicious food. Very nice staff. Asked for a glass of wine (175ml), but it looked like 250ml, but for the same price! Wish we had been in Christchurch longer to go back.

From the wasabi cream, pickled radish and lamb amuse to the last piece of venison belly, the whole meal was amazing. The duck soup was my favourite. So so good. The tragedy is that the souo is not on the next menu . Life changing

Very disappointed. After reading reviews was expecting much more. Food average. Pork belly was dry and needed more sauce. Venison was ok but nothing to rave about. Friday night and the place was empty.More

Thanks Claire B for taking the time to write your first ever review, dry pork belly is a big call, I don,t suppose when your meals were checked by the wait staff you bothered asking for more sauce? We're glad you found the venison ok,...More

Excellent dinner bistro with interesting menu, excellent service in a charming locale that has quite a nice bar/patio vibe out back. We loved the braised beef and the turkey/lamb combo. The desserts were good as well. Our waiter, Husi, was spectacularly attentive! Definitely worth a...More
